Sentiment Grows to Regulate Tech Vendors: Axios Survey

AI vendors are careful to claim their tools will augment not replace human analysts, but who are they kidding? A survey by Axios on Survey Monkey finds that 55% of the U.S. adults expect technology to take away more jobs than it creates. Despite that, 82% think U.S. tech companies have a positive economic and social impact. On yet another hand, 55% feel government won’t do enough to regulate tech companies (up from 40% in October, Axios notes) and 55% feel social media hurts democracy and free speech. The liberal/conservative splits are interesting – they’re not necessarily what you’d expect.
